IBA is the oldest business school outside North America. It was established in 1955 with initial technical support provided by the world famous Wharton School of Finance, University of Pennsylvania; later, the University of Southern California set up various facilities at the Institute and several prominent American professors were assigned to the IBA. The course contents, the curriculum, the pedagogical tools and the assessment and testing methods were developed under the guidance of reputed scholars from these two institutions. IBA has zealously guarded the high standards and academic traditions it had inherited from Wharton and USC while adapting and adjusting them with the passage of time. Till 1994, the University of Karachi awarded degrees to the graduates. In that year, the Sindh Assembly elevated the Institute’s status to that of a degree-awarding institution. Despite a rapid increase in the number of business schools, the IBA has maintained its position as the premier Institution of higher learning in the field of Management and Business Administration.
The IBA International Entrepreneurship Summer School (IESS) is a 19-20 day academic Program designed to give the students, national and international, a taste of Entrepreneurship in South Asia while appreciating the cultural richness of Pakistan. This fast track program comprises of: Lectures, Company visits, country-wide travelling, and excursion to beautiful mountainous landscapes of Pakistan.
